We accept applications from students whose home university or department has an active exchange agreement with HDK-Valand or a university wide agreement with the University of Gothenburg. In order to apply for an exchange semester at HDK-Valand, we require a nomination from your home university.
Please note that the programmes we offer are generally not offered on an introductory level. Even though we do not require any formal pre-requisites (such as a certain amount of credits in a subject) in order for you to apply for a certain programme, some of the programmes do require you to demonstrate a certain amount of preknowledge of the subject and material used within that programme, or a certain amount of experience working in the workshops commonly used within the education.
The admissions jury will review each applicants’ submitted material (portfolio) and decide upon if the prerequisites seem to be sufficient for the applicant/s to properly take part in the programme.
Due to a limited number of study places, please note that nominated students applying for exchange studies at HDK-Valand are not guaranteed a place.
